Going Public brings a range of socially engaged practitioners involved in theatre, film, new media and history into conversation to explore the political, aesthetic and performative dimensions of our work. What are the creative and ethical challenges we face? What are possibilities for community-university collaborations? What are our strategies when addressing sensitive issues like genocide, human rights abuses or gender discrimination? What are the tools and methods we use to get our work to diverse publics across multiple platforms? Practitioners from around the world reflect on the process, the art and the significance of Going Public in an era of multimedia authorship.
